[from the diary of Jesse Calvin Spaulding, Co. F., 25th Massachusetts]
Got paid off to day to November 1st
Got a check for twenty dollars to send home
It has been a very pleasant day. Geo. Kinsman
washed my clothes to day. Have been writing
some, went up to the doctors and got some cough
mixture as my cough is very troublesome
Wrote a letter for Geo. Kinsman this afternoon.
